Braxton Miller Shines in Ohio State spring game

Braxton Miller arguably had a case to be a Heisman finalist last year. The Ohio State quarterback is already figured to be on many preseason lists this time around, and while spring games mean nothing in terms of what happens in the fall, Miller got off to a good start in the Buckeyes’ spring game in Cincinnati on Saturday.

“Fundamentally he’s pretty good. When it breaks down, that’s when it starts to go,” head coach Urban Meyer said of Miller. “But he’s much improved. We have to improve everyone around him.”

Miller went 16-of-25 passing for 217 yards and a pair of scores to Devin Smith and Corey Brown.

On defense, freshman Adolphus Washington impressed with four sacks.

“Adolphus Washington has really raised his level of play,” Meyer said. “He’s a legitimate player. You saw him today just have his way with our offensive line at times.”

But mostly, Ohio State’s spring game was run of the mill — which is a good thing if the top priority is to avoid injuries. Afterward, Meyer joked that the “controversy” with Tiger Woods at The Masters was more interesting than how his team did today.

“That’s probably more interesting than what I’ve got to say,” Meyer remarked.

    He should declare now, he can excel like Troy Smith and Terrelle Pryor have in the NFL. He loves running – either gain some weight at start playing RB or start practicing pass-catching now.

    It is going to be a fun season to watch. Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington are going to cause a ton of issues for offenses!!! Braxton and crew are going to score a sh!t ton of points in the process as well.

    @scoocha

    Braxton on is a tremendous college football player – – as were both Troy and Pryor.

    Plenty of people obtain Business degrees who do not become C. E. O.s.

    There are currently 32 starting NFL quarterbacks. Maybe history remembers 5 of them as elite.

    Allow the young man to enjoy the accolades of his labor. Why begrudge him the present with a future no one can predict.

    In other words: haters gon hate.

    Great response – you put forth some great points.
    I’m just reacting to ESPN and other media outlets telling me that this guy is the next star NFL QB.
    He’s a true black QB – run first because he’s so athletic and can’t read pass coverages.

    I’m a hater because I have a more informed opinion?
